Hitting the big 60
Today has been different in terms of my schedule. My carer is still away and I haven't swum since Wednesday. I had a physio appointment at 1 so I decided to have an easy morning and swim after the appointment. The pool was in total chaos! There were more sc...

Just another Manic Monday
My carer is on holiday this week so it's the first time I headed to the pool without her.  I chose to go an hour earlier than normal so that I had time to do more but it turned out to probably not be the best decision. There was plenty of my normal grumblin...

A mixed bag
I've missed a week of posting because I had a few crappy sessions. On Friday the 15th my nose clip broke just after I got in the water which basically screwed my chances of swimming properly. That Friday was actually a crappy day all round, so the less said...

Wednesday's work
What a lovely session. The slow lane was quiet for most of the hour I was in the pool, despite it being half term. The kids were mostly in the open section or the diving pool so us lane swimmers could just carry on. Yay. Not much to report to be honest. I d...

A new week, sort of
Yup, I'm playing catch up again aren't I? Friday went well. I was as tired as normal, Friday's can really be a struggle for me after a busy week. I just remind myself that I can rest that afternoon and during the weekend and that keeps me going. Once I'm in...
